Best Coffee That Makes You Feel Like Your Barista Is a Chemist
Meaghan Habuda

Take a marshmallow, a torch and coffee and you’ve got one hell of a drink. Seriously, the Campfire Story tastes like a campfire, or at least like you’re sitting around one, roasted marshmallows in hand. Watching owner Story Stuart make it, too, is nothing short of eye-popping, because it definitely feels a little Mr. Wizard/Bill Nye the Science Guy-ish. —Cathy Salustri
